Germany in football fever

Jörg Thomann notes that German Chancellor Angela Merkel has undergone a media makeover just in time for the World Cup. Starting yesterday, the "Angela Merkel podcast” is online and can be downloaded fresh from the website each Saturday… It can be downloaded onto PC or MP3 players, but you don't have to if you don't want to. The chancellor remains aloof and unobtrusive as long as you don't send her podcast video as spam. But that's rather unlikely, at least as far as the first video is concerned, because those who hear the loud lead-in and think they're about to see a big, flashy Angie podcasting show will be sorely disappointed. Ms Merkel sits very composedly in front of a still of the Reichstag and the Brandenburg Gate wearing the glasses she wore when she gave her New Year's speech and welcomes viewers to the World Cup in her characteristically sombre manner.”
